i was able to convince the catering lady that she absolutely needed my help w/performing her duties. so for my efforts & in lew of pay i recieved
a) a tour shirt
b) a backstage pass(for catering purposes only.hee hee)
c) since this was my bday show, she allowed me to go out a find a companion for the evening-granting another backstage pass
so during set break the drummer was mackin'on some hottie, and causually looked over and said," man, I think that was the best 1set we've ever played ".
once the IInd started up, there was a flubb or two, but all in all i was extremly impressed. the entire show was a blast & for myself it was awesome on many levels.since
a) it was my bday(well everyone's really)
b) backstage was sweet
c) it was my 1st sci show
download this show.listening back, resume man is nice,dont say...shit, the whole show is tight.
my 2 cents

Long show. If you don't feel like reading this whole review, the 4-star rating was easy to give and can be summed up as every song was great, but not perfect.
Pretty dull Ms. Brown's. Except for the "The waiter. Is movin. Like a robot. He's groovin." But if that's the best part then it's not worth it. The MLT is pretty cool for the better than usual Kyle solo in the middle and the very end of the song to segue it into the jam that goes into Smile. This show has some great long segue jams, specifically the one between MLT and Smile and the one between 100 Year Flood and Lonesome Road. Keeps the music flowing well.
They played Smile a lot during Spring 2000, and there were some really good ones (4/7/00 is great, plus that one with Darol Anger, and 3/13/00 is the best Smile they've ever played). This one is right up there as well, top 10 for sure. Some cool machine gun drums before going back into the vocals.
I never enjoy Resume Man that much but this one has a cool story behind the song introduction from Keith. 20-second "Maaaaan" at the end, Kang wins, Billy comes in 2nd, Kyle is placing bets.
Right Place Wrong Time is a cover I wish they'd bring back. Nothing in particular to say about this one though. I like the Horning's 2001 Don't Say the best (8/12?), although I don't have them in organized rankings or anything, this one is all right though. Good segue into Birdland, 3 -4 minutes. This Birdland is all right. Better ones will come during the summer (and at Jazzfest of course).
Howard is good, except could've used some Billy saying "Howard." also going back into the end of the song after the jam is not as smooth as it could be, although there are no flagrant errors.
Some fiddle on 100 Year Flood where we usually (but not always) only hear mando. Then back to mandolin. I really like the jam into Lonesome Road. And Lonesome Road goes into On the Road with Kyle shouting "Jump back!" and other Kylesque expressions. On the Road is short and simple.
Jellyfish is short too I guess. Kyle is obsessed with the Brady Bunch and their dog named Tiger throughout this set. I like the Jellyfish into CAYA jam a ton as well. Come as You Are is pretty interesting this time around which makes it above average.
Big Scotia is cool because it's past 1999, and also for Homer Travis McGee bringing it into San Jose with a nice drum solo. A hearty AhhhHaHa from Kang at the beginning of San Jose. Even Kyle adds a random "Yea" in somewhere in the beginning, at least he isn't yelling "tiger" anymore. The transition from Billy's solo into the last verse could have been a bit smoother. Energetic Kang, but not long enough to be one of the top San Joses. Good though. This is the San Jose where they ensure that the crowd yelling "Wooo" will become a tradition, for better or worse. Oh wait, Kyle does yell "Tiger" again.
